Of everything said in this thread, this is the one I most agree with. Give Cain average heavyweight cardio and he's still a top fighter, capable of beating many in the division with his solid wrestling and striking. But his cardio is the 'X' that allows him to challenge and beat the best in the world. My only question is how much of that cardio is genetic, and how much is just that Cain & his team have mastered the art in his camp.
BTW, I'm a Junior dos Santos fan. I was cheering for him in this fight, but came away with a new respect for Cain Velasquez
